Stimulating Global Partnerships and National Action for Young Children

Despite growing policy attention to the early years of children’s lives, fragmentation of the early childhood development community complicates effective global collaboration and commitment. The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) aspires to build and support an active global movement to achieve measurable impact focused on early learning by influencing political and financial commitments in low- and middle-income countries.

CIFF contracted Results for Development (R4D) to develop a global ECD advocacy strategy to help the Foundation achieve measurable impact in the field and inform what a global coalition around early learning and early childhood development might look like.

R4D conducted a survey of 29 organizations, and developed six case studies that explored stakeholder perspectives on the potential for increased global advocacy around early learning, specifically in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
